Friedrich the Entertainer

Here’s a surprising fact about Nietzsche: He’s actually really witty, with a keen sense of irony. Some favorite lines so far:

On virtue:

When virtue has slept, she will get up more refreshed.

On poetry:

The poet presents his thoughts festively, on the carriage of rhythm: usually because they could not walk.

On party members:

Whoever thinks much is not suitable as a party member: he soon thinks himself right through the party.

Granted it’s not Mark Twain or Oscar Wilde, but not bad for a gloomy German philosopher.
